We love to celebrate a new life in Christ!

It doesn't make you a believer; it shows everyone that you are a believer.

Twice a year, Encounter celebrates those who continue their faith journey with this outward expression of an inward change.

Our next baptism will be Sunday, Aug. 4 at the White Wagon Road boat launch in Chemung.

We encourage you to share your story – how you've arrived at this moment in your walk with Jesus. Don't worry! We'll help you prepare something. Sharing your story will help others as they move closer to God.

Where you're baptized isn't as important as getting baptized. We have baptisms in our worship center, and once a year we head down to the river.

Baptism classes are held the week prior to the ceremony. If you would like more information, we've got a form you can fill out here.
